Joan is a Sagittarian from New York City. A vocalist, composer, author, and is the founder of the non-profit organization WOMEN IN JAZZ SOUTH FLORIDA, INC. that promotes women who compose and perform jazz and blues music, globally.
The ultimate goal of the organization is to build a state-of-the-arts Museum of Women in Music that will house permanent and traveling exhibits, library, archives, performance and rehearsal space, and a place for female musicians to gather and share their experiences with the community-at-large.
Her composition Sweet Return is the title of a 1983 Freddie Hubbard recording for Atlantic Records. Released in 1998, her first solo album (Feelin' Good) was cut in Sicily with a talented group of Italian musicians.
She co-produced and co-hosted the community based talk show Let's Get Serious for WLRN-CH 36/37 in Miami. In 1998, she produced and spearheaded the first annual Gaiafest Women's Jazz Festival in Fort Lauderdale featuring Dakota Staton and other women jazz artists.
Joan now hosts a weekly, online radio show - MUSICWOMAN LIVE! that features women who compose and perform their own music and men who support them. The show began on July 16, 2008 on BlogTalkRadio.com/MusicWoman and has featured dozens of female musicians, vocalists and composers. She has toured five continents and 15 countries including the U.S.A., eight European countries, Brazil, Mexico, Ghana, Gambia, South Africa, China and Japan, with her swinging brand of jazz and blues.
Joan's book, In Pursuit of a Melody, is review of this jazz vocalist and composer's brilliant career and travels. It is dramatic and humorous and contains Joan's poetry and songs, written over the course of 28 years. It also contains two lectures that she's given to over 5,000 children and college students, in U.S., Switzerland, Sicily, China and Japan: WOMEN IN JAZZ and SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SINGER? Her workshops are dynamic and educational, highlighting the pitfalls and benefits of the music business. She contends that, "Knowing music theory is a step in the right direction for any singer who truly wants to excel in the world of music!"
Joan has a B.A. in Communications and Music from LaSalle University, (Philadelphia) and a Master’s in Communications from Florida Atlantic University. Joan studied piano, composition and theory with pianist Gerald Price, and harp with Caliope Proios. She also studied ballet and modern dance with Bernice Johnson and Lavern Porter, and African dance with Dinizulu. She's performed on television, radio and on stage at the Blue Note (NYC).
